Acer 5315-2315 Laptop, No Power or Power On LED Light

My laptop has powered itself off. I suspected the fan or heatsink causing the problem from overheating. However, the laptop is free of dust and clean. I replaced the fan and heatsink but encountered the same no power on probem. So, I removed the new fan and heatsink and re-installed the old parts. the pwoer supply shows the gree LED power light. I may need to check the power supply, connectins and the power jack connector on the laptop with a multimeter for power. I tried clearing a possible stuck power on key and got the laptop to power on once. But the power on LED light problem returned again. There is no power LED light on, no power on screen and no boot up display. I'm thinking it may be the laptop power jack connector is bad and causing "no power on".

    My power supply adapter was defective and causing the power problems. At first I did not think it would be the power supply since it was not old. But, power supplies can hang up and become defective. So, with the new power supply, my problem has been resolved.

It happens when system gets heated and then afterwards it hang. So it is a problem with your system power supply. You need to change it.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite P200 doesn't boot

Try pressing FN/F5 keys simultaneously, or the key that toggles internal/external Display. Look for the double screen Icons on the keys.

Tap the Pause Key.

Restart and press and hold F8 key when Toshiba logo appears. When the boot Menu appears, select Last Known Good Configuration.

If all else fails ther should be a reset button on the side of the LT. Consult owners Manual for location

SOURCE: the dc power jack will not accept power.

It's a little more involved than just removing the keyboard. You have to
Completely disassemble the laptop, until just the motherboard is in your
hand.

HOWEVER, for this Acer model it's a different installation, than the
normal one. This DC Power Jack uses a small wire harness. You just
unplug the old one, and install the new one. Let me explain,

I'm a tech who normally works on HP, Compaq, IBM, (Lenova now),
and Acer laptops. Acer's that are older than yours. All the DC Power
Jacks that I have replaced, are directly soldered to the motherboard,
and have no wire harness leading off of them. No plug connector on
the end of a harness, either.

In my search just now for a replacement power jack, my findings show
that the Acer Aspire 5920 series have a small wire harness.
Let me show you,
http://www.notebooksolutions.ca/zc/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=2977

Here the jack is offered minus the harness. You have to unsolder your old
harness from the defunct power jack, and solder it to the new one.
http://www.laptopjacks.com/view_part/Acer-Laptop-DC-Power-Jack-AC231916.html

You'll find the body of the DC jack is made of plastic. There is a metal
pin in the center. (This is the Positive post. + )
Some DC power jacks have a metal cylinder, or metal tube shape that surrounds the Positive metal center pin. This is the Negative connection.
Some just have a flat metal contact prong in the back for Negative.

If you have your AC adapter plugged in, and the plug is bumped, the metal
center pin can break loose from it's mount. Break loose from the plastic
body. Same thing for the metal 'shell' for the Negative connection, but this
doesn't happen as often.
Again, most DC Power Jacks have metal flat prongs that come out of the
power jack's body, go through the motherboard, and are soldered on the
backside. These solder connections can crack, and break, making an
intermittent connection. Doesn't seem to be the case for yours, IF the
jacks shown are the correct ones.

This may help you in your endeavor to disassemble your Acer Aspire.
(AND reassemble!) (TIP from me. DEFINITELY buy an ESD wrist strap
and connect the alligator clip to a good ground. They only cost about
$5 to $7 dollars. They are to relieve static from your body. Electro Static
Discharge wrist strap)

SOURCE: C500 Laptop won't come on power button just flashes

Have you tried attaching an external monitor when the LCD screen is disconnected from the motherboard? this connector is located under the keyboard strip – a piece of plastic just above the keyboard.
If it works, this way, then the video cable isn’t seated properly in the connector on the back of the screen. Plugging the video cable back in should fix the problem.
I don’t know how comfortable you are with taking apart laptops but I think that this information could be useful for you.

Power/Power-on Issues


First find out if it is a laptop or a tower. If a laptop has to be sure that the power supply is the corresponding purchased, voltage, amps and Hz If not, the motherboard is out and you have to buy a new one. Also it could be that the problem was in the motherboard power connector. An important point when working with a computer or laptop is to be careful with the static and take proper precautions. Either way, and I recommend buying a new PC or laptop would be cheaper.

Hi , When i plug my charger into my acer 4730 laptop it become hot and suddenly turn off, what can i do ??? please help me


Have a look around the base of the laptop for access panels, if you remove these, one of them should give you access to the fan, this fan blows air through a heatsink in order to cool the laptop down, clean all around the fan and also remove the fan to clear the gap in between the fan and the heatsink as dust builds up there very easily.

Hope this helps

My dell inspiron 1525 wont open. Im sure that the power cable is working. Before, everytime I use it, it is too hot as if the fan isnt working at all. I dont know if some capacitors are burned already.


This laptop is fairly easy to check for overheating causes.
Remove the large cover from the back of the laptop to reveal the CPU and heatsink fan. Clean the area around the fan and heatsink. Power the laptop on and see if the fan moves ( also see that the 3 pin connector that connects the fan to the motherboard is plugged in).

Check for blown capacitors, burning around the components and signs of overheating on the board area that you can see. You could try replacing the CPU chip in case it has burned out, however, I rather suspect that the overheating has damaged another component on the motherboard and a replacement motherboard is required

Shuts down will not turn on at all


Hello,

The first thing you need to do is clean the heatsink on your laptop. The heatsink is a piece of metal that dissipates heat away from the cpu, and is cooled by the fan on your laptop. If it's overheating and shutting off, it's either a clogged heatsink, or the fan is not turning. Get a can of compressed air, or use an air compressor if you have access to one (set at 80 psi).
You need to blast air into the grill on the laptop where the hot air comes out. This will likely cause a cloud of dust to come out of the bottom of the laptop where the fan is. This is a good thing. Also, remove the battery from your laptop and plug in the power cord. If it still won't power on when plugged in (with no battery) then the laptop is likely dead. Acer will usually repair a laptop for $199 so this may be the way to go.

Let me know how you make out!

Joe .

My laptop swithces off itself every 40 minutes


This is typical of a overheating (thermal shut down) CPU problem.
When the CPU overheats and shuts down, it won't bootup again until the CPU cools down. If this is not fixed then the CPU will fail.
This problem is caused by either a faulty fan or the fan and heat assembly is clogged with dust.
Check the fan to see if it spins freely, replace if faulty and clean the dust off the fan and heatsink assembly.
Also apply fresh thermal paste to the heatsink/CPU.

No power


Hi,
You can easily done, Right click your desktop and choose Properties. Select the Screen Saver tab and at the bottom choose Power. In the Power Schemes drop down box choose Always On and the PC will never turn off. You might also want to disable or set the time higher for your screen saver.
Please rate this solution accordingly.

or another solution , its because CPU get hot. check the cpu fan or clean that, heatsink of cpu fan must be clean and closed to cpu.

Thanks

I have the same problem my acer extensa 4420


I had a similar problem with my Acer Extensa 4420. After reviewing all the recommended solutions, I decided to open the case to see if I could see a disconnected cable or other easy explanation.

However, when I pulled the heatsink off the CPU and found that the heatsink compound had almost completely dried out. I cleaned the heatsink and applied new compound, then reinstalled the heatsink and put the computer back together.

It works great. Interestingly, this is the same problem that plagued the XBox 360 and the "red rings of death" failure. Just an option that is easier than pulling the entire case apart.

ACER 3680 will not power up


hello, am temab concerniong your problem on powering your system right?
I hope the best thing for you to do is by checking whether the processor cooling fan is running cause that causes the system not to power on or power on and before short seconds it flickers and go on off again . there is nothing wrong with your power jack. If the problem is that the pc fan is not rolling then change the fan but if the fan is roling then change the processor itself. any other question?
